There are two main types of cameras on the market today with point-and-shoot cams being the cheaper and smaller type. The DSLR is much more expensive and complicated with its interchangeable lenses. There is also a much smaller category of cameras called micro four thirds cameras that have interchangeable lenses but lack the mirror of a DSLR making them more compact.
Samsung has unveiled a new camera that is a bit different from the micro four thirds cams on the market with a slightly larger lens connector and a larger sensor called the NX10. The camera uses no mirrors and three lenses will be available for it including the kit lens, a zoom lens, and a pancake lens.
The camera has a 14.7MP sensor and a 3-inch AMOLED screen. It can record video at 720p resolution using H.264 compression. The ISO range is 100-3200 and a pop-up flash is built-in. Other features include HDMI out and lens shift optical image stabilization.
